Western National Roundup Van Buren County Public Speaking

Jan 21, 2020


Christopher Binkley, Extension Agent Van Buren County

Dylan Simmons participated in the Prepared Speech Contest at Western National Roundup.  “Discovering 4-H” was title of his speech.

Dylan’s speech talks about his experience in 4-H from 4th grade until now.  He came into 4-H as a shy kid who didn’t want to carry on a conversation.  4-H helped him grow as a person that overcame this fear.  The leadership he learned from 4-H has helped him become the “Voice of the Eagles” on our local TV station.  Dylan does the commentary for our local high school basketball team.
